ANNOUNCEMENT

This is notice of and a call for participation for the eighth workshop on space computing. The main sessions are May 27-28, 2015, with working group sessions on May 26 and 29, in Albuquerque. The afternoon session of May 28 will be “closed.”

Like previous years, the topic will be R&D for next generation spacecraft computing systems, including hardware, security/trust, software, and applications.

SOLICITATION FOR PRESENTATIONS

This year, the meeting will be focused on multi-organizational projects and collaborative R&D that could contribute to building space processors and their applications. The organizers are issuing through this page an invitation for presentations on projects or capabilities. Please respond via e-mail to any of the organizers and include a semi-formal proposal.

WORKING GROUPS AND SOLICITATION FOR OTHER WORKING GROUPS

We will have working groups as in past years. Some working groups have been organized already and we are soliciting ideas and participation in organizing others:

  • Trust, as in trusted components
  • 3D technology
  • Impact of shifts in semiconductor scaling and “Moore’s Law”
  • Software issues, notably resilience

The conference has a capacity for other working groups, and we are soliciting ideas and organizers. If you would like to propose a working group, please contact one of the organizers.

ASSOCIATED USER GROUP AND SOLICITATION FOR USER GROUPS

The following will be held in conjunction with the meeting.

  • Opera/Maestro User Group

ATTENDENCE AND REGISTRATION FEE

Attendance is by invitation only. If you are in the industry and would like an invitation, please call Erik DeBenedictis (505) 284-4017 or e-mail erikdebenedictis@sandia.gov. The registration fee is $175 (but see next paragraph). Register at the Sandia Webpay website at https://cfwebprod.sandia.gov/cfdocs/ccpwa/ and selecting “Fault-Tolerant Spaceborne Computing Using New Technologies 2015” as the event name.

If payment of a registration fee creates difficulties, please call Erik DeBenedictis (505) 284-4017 or e-mail erikdebenedictis@sandia.gov and we will work out alternative arrangements.

SENSITIVE INFORMATION

The meeting will include information at various levels of sensitivity.

  • Some sessions on the schedule will indicate the information is sensitive (i. e. export controlled and proprietary). Attendees not eligible to receive specific information will be asked to leave the meeting room as needed.
  • There will be Government session that may be attended by only Government, FFRDC, and SETA employees.
  • While the entire meeting is by invitation only, there may be additional invitation-only sessions not posted on the Internet.

FOREIGN NATIONALS

Foreign nationals will require a badge to enter DOE facilities. Foreign nationals should contact the conference sponsors immediately about a badge and should plan on stopping at the Sandia badge office about 1/2 mile away before first entering DOE premises.

ACCOMMODATIONS

The associated hotel is the Sheraton at Menaul and Lousiana (same as the past few years). Please go to this website: https://www.starwoodmeeting.com/Book/faulttolerant . Group name “Fault-Tolerant Spaceborne Computing.” Rate: $83 per night. The cut-off date for this rate is May 8.

DIRECTIONS

The meeting will be held at several locations:

  • We expect all evening activities to be at the associated hotel in the uptown area of Albuquerque.
  • Except as noted above, open portions of the meeting will be held at Sandia’s Computer Science Research Institute (CSRI) building on 1450 Innovation Parkway, Albuquerque, NM 87123 (map below). This facility is outside of Kirtland Air Force Base; visitors please do not try to enter Kirtland Air Force Base as you will probably not succeed and it will cause quite a delay. US Citizens may go directly to the CSRI building; foreign nationals will need to make arrangements for a badge and then go to the badge office.
  • Closed portions of the meeting will be held in other buildings at Sandia; meet at the CSRI building for directions.

Fault-Tolerant Spaceborne Computing Employing New Technologies, 2010

CSRI Building
Sandia National Laboratories, Albuquerque, NM
May 25-26, 2010 (working groups May 24 and 27)

OVERVIEW AND VISION

Microelectronics advances due to Moore’s Law make it feasible to put much more computing power into embedded systems and hence into space. However, effectively utilizing the increased computing power requires changes in architecture and software and may require reconsideration of radiation hardening issues. This workshop is to serve as a forum for coordinating R&D activities that will enable embedded computing applications to make effective use of new computing technology.

The 2010 workshop is focusing on the following specific issues:

  1. Architecture: Does it make sense to develop a Common Space borne Supercomputer Architecture for the U.S space community (NASA, DoD, DoE, IC)?
  2. Software: What additional software R&D is needed to accommodate emerging multi-core processors and other changes in the underlying hardware?
  3. Fault Tolerance: What additional fault tolerance issues are introduced by advancing computer technology?
  4. IP for Space: Is it feasible to develop and share IP modules compatible with a “plug and play” IP standard across the US Space community? (IP refers to logic designs in FPGAs and ASICs.)
  5. Memory: There will be a special working group on memory advances applicable to space, such as 3D stacking and radiation hardening.
  6. Component trust: What are the vulnerabilities in a spacecraft to using untrusted components and what mitigations are possible?
  7. Other: The organizers are open to participants supplying ideas for other working groups.

The main conference days will be Tuesday and Wednesday, May 25 and 26, 2010.

Working groups will take place on the Monday and Thursday of that week.

ATTENDANCE AND REGISTRATION FEE

Attendance is by gracious invitation only. If you are in the industry and would like an invitation, please call Erik DeBenedictis (505) 284-4017 or e-mail erikdebenedictis@sandia.gov.
